Final Organized Run of 2021: Rothman 8K

Rothman 8K start line.
This weekend was the Philadelphia Marathon weekend. As I have in the past, I signed up for the Rothman 8K which takes place after the half marathon on Saturday. This was my last organized run of 2021, but don't worry since I'm already registered for a few Spring runs in 2022.

So here's the interesting this, I finished the 8K with a pace of 13:59. Two weeks ago when I ran my marathon, my pace was 16:00. That means that if I can build up my stamina to keep that 13:59 pace for the longer distance, I can knock close to an hour off my marathon. I was really proud to just finish and excited that I did it in under 7 hours (6:59:04 to be exact). So let's see if I can do it.

Wish me luck.
